Resting and Easter Prep

Today was a good mix of resting (I slept until almost 10! and took a nap!) and prepping for Easter. I had some shopping to do so I could bring the annual Easter bunny cake, plus I offered to bring artichokes.

As a bonus, last night when I fell asleep my iPad fell on my face and cut my nose and bruised it. Ouch. Absolutely a #firstworldproblem but it really does hurt.

After I ran my errands I came home with a crummy tummy, so I took that nap. When I went out for another round of errands I came home with a horrible migraine.  I took meds because I still needed to make dinner (stuffed portobellas, roasted brussels sprouts, tater tots) and make the 2 circular cakes that become the bunny.

I was rather grouchy when Ravenclaw and Gryffindor came home from their dad’s house remembering that I had promised to take them shopping for an Easter dress. Blergh. I managed to suck it up and take them to Target, but I was decidedly grouchy by the time I got home.

After dinner we had fun dyeing eggs together (first time we did that with The Chosen One!), decorating the bunny cake, and then watching a film on lds.org called “He is Risen” which follows the final days of Jesus. Good little film.

Now that the children are asleep (and so is The Chosen One), the Easter Bunny can come. Tomorrow we’ll have church with my mom and then go to my mom’s house for an Easter brunch with steak and eggs. Sounds like a good plan. Thank goodness I can sleep in a bit tomorrow (until 8), because I’m a little sleepy now.
